Episode 6 of “House Of The Dragon” gave us the first look at Emma D'Arcy seamlessly taking on Rhaenyra Targaryen from Milly Alcock. She’s still strong-willed and independent in her attitude towards the family ties, and it was in the lengthy and painstaking walk to Queen Alicent that "House of the Dragon" set up another groundbreaking moment that stood out brilliantly.
From Rhaenyra giving birth to her son Joffrey to her walk to present the newborn baby to the Queen, we're gifted with an impressive five-minute clip allowing us to linger on the excruciating journey for the new mother. Admittedly, evident camera trickery is included to cut the scene by way of darkness and passing through dimly lit halls, but the objective is achieved nonetheless.
It is by far the longest sequence in the franchise's history, with previous contenders being that epic 50-second take in "The Battle of the Bastards," as well as a 17-second spine-tingler in "Hardhome" that made up some of “Game of Thrones” most amazing moments.
